Forget motorbikes. Honda’s latest way of getting yourself from A to B is on a whole different level. Literally, when it’s going. The HondaJet isn’t going into production until 2010, and it’ll cost a cool $3.65 million when it goes on sale, but the company claims it’s the fastest and most fuel-efficient aircraft in its class, with a top speed of 420 knots.
The jets will either seat seven or eight people, depending on which configuration you buy, including two pilots. Honda says there’s six inches more leg-room per passenger than its rivals, with more space for baggage – including storing stuff in the nose of the plane itself. It sounds like it’ll be the private jet to be seen in come 2010 (although not heard – it’s one of the quietest in its class too).
